that demand, they'll have no choice but to pursue legal action against mr. armstrong for the return of that money. >> that is not new. i know you made that request, very politely, i may add, but you have not asserted it in a civil court of law. are you going to do that? >> we're waiting to see like everyone else exactly what mr. armstrong says in his interview with oprah winfrey. i can assure you of my client's resolve, if this matter is not resolved, they will sue mr. armstrong. and that demand has been communicated to mr. armstrong's camp very clearly and forcefully. >> which brings me to the critical nature of the wording. i want to know from a legal standpoint exactly what you are listening for that perhaps the layperson may not identify as critical to your mission. the words that lance armstrong uses that could expose him to the liability you're suggesting. >> it's not just admitting that he doped, but that he doped in connection with the tour de france races, that he's been doping for a long period during his career, and hopefully an acknowledgment that he was untruthful in ou

decision was made. if mr. armstrong doesn't return the money, my client is going to sue him for return of those funds. we paid him $12 million because he won three tour de france races and told us under oath he was a clean rider. he's now told us that was a lie, and he's lost those titles. so he neither deserves nor is entitled to that money. he needs to give it back. and while i appreciate, like i'm sure many americans, mr. armstrong's apology tonight, when he sends us his apology, he needs to include a check for the return of our money because he's not entitled to it. >> and what if he doesn't have it? i know you watched the moment, dana and i were just talking about, about how the day when he lost the nike endorsement. that appeared, at least to me watching the interview, that that was a sort of seachange moment for him. what if he doesn't have enough money to pay everybody off, including you? >> well, we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. he's made a substantial amount of money over the last 15 years based on his fame and endorsements. he got $12 million from us. so i'

salt would let mr. armstrong go and talk to federal prosecutors without agraa gra grant of immunity. i imagine when he floated the idea by his attorneys for going on oprah. if he said, what's my criminal risk, not so much. i'll take the chance with the money, i guess he feels like he can afford all this money's he's going to have to pay. >> the word is, professor, he's got somewhere between $100 million and $125 million and you triple the damages in a federal case and only get to $90 million, not so bad, i guess you can keep your house. i got a question about the exposure to the defamation cases that i can only guess are being shuffled right now stacked and getting ready for filing all over the world. and i want to play for you specifically what he said about his behavior when it came to taking down other people who dared to seek the truth. have a listen. >> i was a bully in the sense that you just -- that i tried to control the narrative and if i didn't like what somebody said, and for whatever reasons in my own head, whether i viewed that as somebody being disloyal or a friend tur

winfrey interview. the statement reading here only when mr. armstrong makes a full confession under oath and tells the anti-doping authorities all he knows about doping activities can any legal and proper process for him seek any real or consideration of his lifetime ban commence. they're looking for statements that are under oath. they do not see the oprah winfrey inter view as being enough to clear his record or clear his name. and certainly not to reverse that ban. ed, thank you very much. we'll be following this very closely in the next hour as well. >>> this woman here, she wore a cross around her next until her employer told her to take it off. so, she took her court -- her fight, rather, to the courts. i'm with sandra who just got these great glasses. you hmmm. let's see if walmart can help you find the same look for less. okay. see? walmart has all these leading eyewear brands and styles. rockstar! really? yeah. oh, wow! oh, black frame looks good on you. yeah? you can get a complete pair starting at just -- $38. really?! and did you know that our glasses come wi

dig deeper into this. you said earlier this week, only when mr. armstrong makes a full confession under oath and tells the anti-doping authorities all he knows about doping activities, can any legal and proper process for him to seek any reopening or reconsideration of his lifetime ban commence. so has that window closed now or is there still a window for him to return to professional cycling? >> there's still a window open for him to climb in and put a full statement on oath, to the authority, usada, all through wasda, and say, this is all the information i could tell you. i should have done it before, i've got it now, i would like you to look at it all, and give me a chance by way of a rehearing to put it all to you and be cross-examined on it. that's called an application for a rehearing. now, if the sufficient substance in that to warrant a rehearing, then he's got the opportunity during that rehearing to say, look, i know i did it, but a lifetime ban is too harsh. can you reconsider that sanction? and that opportunity is there. how long it remains is now doubtful. i mean, you

positioned at all. mr. armstrong appears to be a very deliberate, calculating person who has some objective with this admission. we're not sure what it is yet. he has a number of legal issues that are awaiting him, a whistle-blower case for defrauding the federal government since the post office was his primary sponsor, potential criminal cases for possession and/or distribution of illegal drugs, perjury, positions he took in prior cases that may now be considered a fraud on the court. so i don't know what his objective was by this admission, but there seems to be some objective. >> if you were his lawyer, how would you be advising him? would you be glad he's talking? >> unless i had concluded that he had no more risk because the statute of limitations had run or for some other legal basis, i would have advised him not to make those statements. forgiveness from the public is not immunity. >> marty steinberg, thank you so much. attorney for baseball's mark mcgwire, thank you. >>> want to invite all of you to join me at the top of the hour for a special hour on the crash of an american icon,

. "only when mr. armstrong makes a full confession under oath and tells the anti-doping authorities all he knows about doping activities, can any legal and proper process for him to seek any reopening or reconsideration of his lifetime ban commence." so this means that this interview with oprah really only opens the door enough to make a much fuller and complete statement if he expects to get back into the game. >> sure. this is really just the first step, like a pr step, pretty much, going on oprah, who's known to be pretty soft when it comes with the questions, you know, he's pretty much going to be able to control part of the interview. but what he has to do is turn on the people who helped him dope, which are officials in cycling, maybe at usa cycling, maybe at the international cycling union, which is the world governing body of the sport, maybe going up as high as the international olympic committee. >> and real quick, but i think a lot of this loses focus on the charity, the livestrong foundation. real quick, what kind of impact has all of this had, would you think this admission
